Abogados especializados en daños laborales en Indiana e Illinois

 

Nada puede impactar una familia más rápido y de manera más devastadora que cuando el padre o la madre han sufrido una lesión grave y no pueden trabajar. Muchos trabajos son peligrosos, y los accidentes laborales pueden ser muy graves y alterar la vida. En los estados de Indiana e Illinois, hay demasiadas personas honestas y trabajadoras que sufren daños permanentes por trabajar en la industria de la construcción, en vías acuáticas o en las fábricas de nuestra área. Si bien existen leyes y reglamentos estatales y federales para hacer que los lugares de trabajo sean más seguros, los accidentes trágicos y muertes suceden con mucha frecuencia.

 

El estudio jurídico del noroeste de Indiana y Chicago Kenneth J. Allen Law Group representa a víctimas de daños personales y a sus familias que sufren los efectos de un accidente en el lugar de trabajo. Un abogado especializado en lesiones laborales cubre todo tipo de casos, incluidos los relacionados las siguientes áreas:

 

 

Cuáles son sus derechos y qué pasos debe seguir si sufre una lesión en el trabajo

 

Los accidentes de trabajo suelen ser consecuencia de accidentes, incluidos resbalones y caídas. No obstante, una lesión en el lugar de trabajo no necesariamente tiene que deberse a un accidente para poder reclamar indemnización laboral. El acto de colocar una máquina o incluso subir o bajar un tramo de escaleras puede provocar lesiones musculares, fracturas por estrés y otras lesiones que pueden impedirle trabajar. Incluso el trabajo duro en empleos administrativos puede provocar lesiones laborales, como fatiga visual, síndrome del túnel carpiano y problemas en el cuello y la espalda.

 

Su empleador está obligado a contratar un seguro de indemnización laboral, y usted tiene derecho a beneficios de indemnización por cualquier lesión que se produzca en el lugar de trabajo durante el curso de sus tareas laborales normales. Este seguro cubre los gastos médicos y la discapacidad a corto plazo durante el tiempo en que no puede trabajar. Si la negligencia grave o imprudencia por parte de su empleador u otro empleado fue un factor influyente en su lesión, usted puede tener derecho a una indemnización adicional.

 

Si se ha lesionado en el lugar de trabajo, uno de los primeros pasos es informar del incidente a su empleador, si es posible, sin importar el grado de dolor inmediato. Puede poner en riesgo su derecho a indemnización laboral, otras compensaciones monetarias potenciales e incluso su trabajo si no notifica una lesión de inmediato y de acuerdo con las reglas de su empleador.

 

Después de conseguir atención médica de urgencia, debe comunicarse con un abogado especializado en daños personales en el lugar de trabajo que pueda ayudarlo a comenzar a organizar su caso y asegurarse de que reciba toda la indemnización posible a la que tiene derecho.

 

Si se formula un reclamo de indemnización laboral, usted o su abogado tendrán que llenar formularios de reclamo. Muchos estados y empleadores tienen sus propios formularios, en que solicitan información básica como información personal y detalles acerca de la lesión. Guarde una copia del formulario, y entregue el original a su empleador. Luego, un administrador de reclamos debe comunicarse con usted a la brevedad para notificarle el estado del reclamo.

Indiana and Illinois Work Related Attorneys

Nothing can impact a family faster and in a more devastating way than when the father or mother has been hurt on the job — severely — and is unable to work. Many jobs are dangerous, and work injuries on the job can be very serious and life altering. Indiana and Illinois see all too many good people permanently damaged from their work in construction, or on the waterways, or in the factories of our area. While there are state and federal laws, rules and regulations to make job sites safer, all too often they fail to stop a tragic accident or death.

The Northwest Indiana and Chicagoland personal injury law firm of Kenneth J. Allen Law Group represents injury victims and their families who are suffering from the effects of a work-related, on-the-job injury. A work injury attorney covers all kinds of cases, including those involving:

Your Rights, and Steps to Take When Injured at Work

Work-related injuries often result from accidents, including slips and falls. A workplace injury does not necessarily have to have stemmed from an accident to qualify for worker’s compensation, however. The act of positioning a machine or even walking up or down a flight of stairs can cause muscle strains, stress fractures and other injuries that can keep you out of work. Even toiling at administrative jobs can lead to workplace injuries, such as eyestrain, carpal tunnel syndrome, and neck or back problems.

Your employer is required to carry worker’s compensation insurance, and you are entitled to the benefits for any injury that occurs in your workplace during the course of your normal work tasks. This insurance covers your medical costs, as well as short-term disability for the time you are unable to work. If gross negligence or recklessness on the part of your employer or another employee factored into your injury, you may be entitled to additional damages as well.

If you’ve been injured in the workplace, one of your first steps should be to report the incident to your employer, if at all possible, regardless of the degree of immediate pain. You may jeopardize your worker’s compensation eligibility, any other potential monetary awards, and even your job if you fail to report an injury immediately and in accordance with your employer’s regulations.

After getting any urgently needed medical attention, you then should contact a workplace injury lawyer who can help you begin to organize your case and ensure that you receive all potential compensation to which you are entitled.

If a worker’s compensation claim is made, you or the attorney will have to fill out claim forms. Many states and employers have their own forms, which will ask for basics such as personal information and details about the injury. Keep a copy of the form, and turn the original in to your employer. A claims administrator should contact you shortly thereafter to notify you of the claim status.

How Kenneth J. Allen Law Group Can Help You

A worker’s compensation lawyer can help ensure that your employer follows state regulations for covering your medical costs and time off work, and also will explore any other damages for which your employer may be liable. A good worker’s compensation attorney also will stay in touch with your doctors, recovery specialists (such as physical therapists), and your employer to make sure your recovery and return to work proceed smoothly.

At Kenneth J. Allen Law Group, our Indiana and Chicago work injury lawyers are experienced in the numerous types of workplace injuries that may occur in any type of job, and we’re ready to fight to get the resources you need to recover properly and get back on the job. In Chicago, work injuries can happen to anyone. In Indiana, work injuries also can occur at any time. Be sure you receive the compensation to which you are entitled.
